Stormy past; bright future. Go and leave your footprints there, breathe in the mountain air, share a silent conversation with a shy gorilla in northern Rwanda and never feel the same again. One traveller explained it like this: “To be able to stand within feet of them and get the kind of images usually reserved for a Sir David Attenborough special; to hear them, smell them, watch and laugh with them, was simultaneously awe-inspiring, humbling, mind-blowing and tear-jerkingly moving.” Martin Roberts. Although a huge highlight, gorillas are not all ‘the land of a Thousand Hills’ has to offer. It also has hills, thousands 😉
